This Is The Worst Possible Gesture You Can Make While Presenting An Item On Beheading

BBC News anchor Clive Myrie was caught making an awkward hand gesture last night.

During a BBC News report on Facebook allowing beheading videos Tuesday night, anchor Clive Myrie was caught making a rather awkward hand gesture.

Just as the news program was displaying David Cameron's tweet about Facebook's policy on beheading videos, the camera quickly switched back to Myrie, and caught him doing this:

Myrie made the "cut" gesture after accidentally saying the word "patients" instead of "parents" while reading out David Cameron's tweet.

His gesture didn't go unnoticed:
